This page is under construction as of 15 March 2013 and is intended to be a repository for information on EGI's funded mini-projects that will be progressed under the established Virtual Team framework. Owner of this page is Richard McLennan


In June 2012, the EGI Council endorsed the EGI strategy ‘Seeking new horizons: EGI’s role in 2020’ (see as a framework for the future developments of the EGI Community. As a result of this report the EGI-InSPIRE PMB sought suggestions from within the EGI-InSPIRE consortium as to activities that could be undertaken during PY4 of the EGI-InSPIRE project to accelerate the objectives identified in the EGI strategy of:

  • Undertaking Coordination and Community Building across the EGI Community and its stakeholders.
  • Maintaining and expanding the Operational Infrastructure and its management tools to support other Research Infrastructures and Cloud Technologies.
  • Enabling the deployment of domain specific and centrally provisioned Virtual Research Environments.

As a result, over 30 suggestions were received and following an assessment undertaken by the EGI-InSPIRE PMB and the AMB 11 activities were prioritised for implementation. These will accelerate EGI’s strategic goals by investing in tools to build and educate communities, to integrate and effectively use federated clouds, and to provide enhanced operational tools for virtual organisations, a new approach to computing availability and reliability, enhancements to EGI’s service registry to support other projects and infrastructures, and tools for automating resource allocation. Together, these activities will reduce the barriers for researchers to access the resources that they need wherever they may be located. The activities translate into the mini-projects tabled beneath and summaries of the activities and the motivations behind them can be found in the associated wiki pages (managed by the respective project leaders).
